Well, if you have something in mind you'd like me to work on, I'm
going to be looking around for a small python project to cut my teeth
on pretty soon :)

Well, nothing which you said seems to have been said such that I felt
I should have taken offense to it. I'm well aware of my limitations,
and it seems that most here weren't really aware of my capabilities in
that I'm not a developer per se, but a sysadmin who has very limited
(perl) programming experience, and no experience at all in working on
a team project in a distributed manner.

I certainly can't contribute patches to svn yet, but I certainly
would love to learn and brush up on my C to the point where I can
contribute something back. I figure the best way to do that is to
begin helping where I can with things like release and patch mgmt.

Thanks for being so accepting and tolerant :)

(as I scurry off to see why my release is failing 'make' :)
